Asylum-seekers welcome in
Bay Area and needed in US
Re: “Dump detained immigrants in sanctuary cities? Bay Area mayors react” (Eastbaytimes.com, April 12):
Enough! Let’s take the sorry fool up on his threat. Let’s accept the immigrants to our cities in the Bay Area in response to President Trump’s pitiful, hateful, spiteful and (yes, here I even agree with Gavin Newsom) “sophomoric” proposal to send the asylum-seeking immigrants to sanctuary cities.
With the recent wildfires and natural disasters in the region, we have a shortage of construction laborers. And a recent figure put open jobs in the U.S. at 7.1 million. Let’s bring in this potential work force, employ those who have skills, train others and put them to work.

Certainly, there will be associated issues of housing and transportation for the workers, which will be daunting. But wouldn’t our time, energy and resources be better spent here than in projects like draining the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to send water south and the bullet train to nowhere?
